What a beautiful Earth. There she is, Planet Earth. Isn’t she beautiful? It’s Earth Day, that day dedicated to celebrating and contemplating the beauty, fragility, health and get-your-hands-dirty earthiness of our fair planet. Like any other holiday — much less one founded just two generations ago by hippies — Earth Day has its share of grinches, complaining about eco-sanctimony and whining that it hasn’t solved the world’s problems. (Isn’t Christmas terrible? All those gifts, and we still have war!) And then there’s the slightly confused hangers-on: did you know that Major League Baseball “has spent more than a century largely bracing against and defying Mother Nature, working alongside her in a kind of grounds-keeping pact”?
But for those of us who don’t need to deal with Earth Day through a lens of politics or public relations, it’s a handy moment to make the world slightly nicer — what’s so hard about picking up some trash and taking a shorter shower? — and go for a walk in the park. This alone won’t save the world, but that’s not the point. And in that spirit, I’d like to present my favorite images from Earth as Art, a treasury of satellite images selected by NASA and the United States. Geological Survey “for their aesthetic beauty, rather than for scientific value.”
The Earth receives and processes your energy. The Earth responds to outbursts of your passions. Earth is sick, when you are sick. The earth is suffering from our wars, hatred and rejection of each other. The Earth responds with all these hurricanes, floods, earthquakes. Some of you think that the earth is so punishing you, or even revenge you. But this idea is very far from the truth. In fact, the Earth is trying to help you. So she tries to transform your dissonant energy emitted in Love and Light. And if dissonant energies are very many, a crisis happens in the form of a natural disaster. Because the Earth in any other way can not dispose these dissonant energies.
